Design Verification

DV refers to the series of procedures used by the product development group to ensure that a product design output meets its design input. It focuses primarily on the end of the product development cycle. It is routinely understood to mean a thorough prototype testing of the final product to ensure that it is acceptable for shipment to the customers. In the context of design control, however, DV starts when a product's specification or standard has been established and is an on-going process. The net result of DV is to conform with a high degree of accuracy that the final product meets performance requirements and is safe and effective. According to standards established by IS09000, DV should include at least two of the following measures: (a) holding and recording design reviews, (b) undertaking qualification tests and demonstrations, (c) carrying out alternative calculations, and (d) comparing a new design with a similar, proven design.
